> I can't see that ConsoleKit will magically stop working on systems not using systemd if systemd has features that make it redundant. Ubuntu for example has a lot invested in Upstart and probably won't be switching any time soon. Those features will continue to be developed as long as it still makes sense to do so.
So in other words, people who don't want to adopt systemd will likely take over collective maintenance of ConsoleKit. Sounds reasonable if the current maintainers go along with that in some way.

As I said, I would be more than happy to see that happen.
